Kelly Clarkson has added her name to the list of superstars delivering the national anthem at Nashville Predators playoff games. And, well, she pretty much blew the roof off the place.
The vocal powerhouse and recent coach edition to NBC's The Voice delivered the patriotic performance ahead of Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference finals last week between Nashville and the Anaheim Ducks. The spectacle puts her in the company of Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Vince Gill, Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood, each of whom has offered their talents in recent weeks. See Kelly's performance below.
The Predators brought out the A-list celebrity talent once again, getting Kelly Clarkson to sing Star Spangled Banner and having Kings of Leon as "official towel wavers."
Afterwards Kelly offered one request: "Dear @PredsNHL please win, or people will blame me! #ANAvsNSH Go Preds!" The Preds lost the game, unfortunately, but recovered in Game 5. They lead the series 3-2 with Game 6 set for tonight (5/22).
Dear @PredsNHL please win, or people will blame me! #ANAvsNSH Go Preds!
